house democratic leader nancy pelosi to the podium to present a mementos you will all receive as you leave the statuary hall . >> thank you very much, mr. chairman schumer, and cochair alexander wonderful inauguration. mr. vice-president, mr. president, first lady, first lady, first lady -- [laughter] dr. biden, all of our distinguished guests. i will tell you about a gift for you. freedom now stands on the dome of the capitol of the united states. may she stand there forever not only in form, but in spirit. those were the words expressed 150 years ago by the commissioner of public buildings as the statue of freedom was placed atop the capitol during the presidency of president lincoln. that expression of the spirit of freedom is what we want you to take with you today, and it is contained in this portfolio that you will receive from the joint congressional committee on inaugural ceremonies, along with a frame depiction of the capitol as it appeared at the start of the civil war. you heard it well described by chairman schumer in his remarks. today the statue of freedom and the spiri
alexander attended, they were all invited, they would have joined not only nancy pelosi, harry reid but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration 2013. here is hoping it spills over to the next four years and both sides of the aisle make a move to be more social and more civil. and, hence, more productive. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz, starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome "the ed show" from new york. republicans are raising the white flag. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. >> the republican game of chicken is over. eric cantore proposes a three-month deal on the debt ceiling. some democrats are calling it a trap. i'll ask dnc chairwoman debbie w
the budget. some democrats not happy. and house minority speaker nancy pelosi saying it's a gimmick, unworthy of the challenges we face and the debate we should be having. the message from the american people is clear, no games no default. for more on this, i would like to bring kristin. what is the white house saying about the issue? >> reporter: craig, they are saying that they are encouraged by the fact that house speaker, john boehner, is putting forward a proposal that increases the debt limit without an equal amount of spending cuts. that was his long-held position a and he is abandoning that position, and saying that he will increase the debt ceiling for a period of three months and in that timeframe, the congress has to come up with a budget and that is a win from the democrats standpoint, but they do not like the idea of increasing the debt limit in increments. the question is, if it gets passed will it force both sides to come to the table on spending cuts within a matter of months when they take on the issue on of the budget and then of course, the sequester. that is the big questi
, the husband of house minority leader nancy pelosi. >> announcer: ladies and gentlemen, the first lady of the united states, mrs. michelle obama, accompanied by secretary of the senate nancy erikson, clerk of the house of representatives, karen h0. 0s, mrs. schubert, mrs. reed and -- [cheering] >> next up we're going to see the approach and about to be announced of vice president, the world's happiest guy, bill biden. don't think we have ever seen him except in times of national crises without that smile on his face. >> and why not today. >> it's the effect of joe biden's remarks on this administration. they were an odd couple. he was the hot to barack obama's cool. >> he was the punch line for a lot of late-night monologues. if anything, joe biden has emerged in this administration has a key player and indispensable player in dealing with the congress and the political part of politics, the people part of politics which the president does not spend a lot of time, effort, or energy on. >> do you agree with that. >> if you look at the deal with congress, they tried every other relations
, practical legislation. mike thompson, who has been designated by nancy pelosi in our caucus to head up a special task force, has been holding hearings, and i think what's gripping the country is that there are common sense, practical solutions. and standing behind that is the resolve of a president, our president, who i was fortunate to fly to connecticut with. when he came out and spoke, he said this was the worst day of my presidency, and you could see to the marrow of the individual how much this has impacted this president and his resolve to protect our children. and as congress has demonstrated most recently with respect to fiscal cliffs, that it cannot act, i expect the president will. and i applaud him for taking executive action, and doing so where he can, abiding by the constitutional amendment, which, of course, as you know, martin, says there shall be a wel well-regulated militia. it has nothing to do with taking the guns out of the hands of people but regulating and control assault weapons, capacity clips, making sure that there's universal background checks for people. com
. republicans are calling it a plan, democratic leader nancy pelosi call it is a gimmick. it sounds more like -- i mean, my read initially was this is more like political posturing rather than a serious deal. what are you hearing down there? >> well, it certainly is something that's meant to try and force the senate to act. you know, the senate has not passed a suggest in over 1,300 days and that's a popular rallying cry of the house gop. but what came out of this retreat was the idea instilled in members that it's probably not beneficial with the republican brand so damaged nationally to have a real standoff over the debt limit. this is a way they're trying to get passed that, a three-month extension. they're not demanding any cuts. all they're demanding is for the senate to have a budget by april 15th. in theory it sounds something less shall we say -- it's less trying to instill anger in democrats, but you saw when harry reid said he was reassured they're moving away from their all-or-nothing proposition. but overall what this is trying to do is give the house the ability to pass an extens
or in fact have harry reid or nancy pelosi come out and attack them all the time if you're trying to get something done that demands an agreement with the other side. bob? >> first of all, charlie, one thing you have to is president obama does not control harry reid or nancy pelosi they are more than anxious -- >> despite how he might wish. >> yeah, in willing to come out and attack republicans on their own spontaneously and with sincere conviction. >> rose: do you think that's helpful? >> no, i think it doesn't work and i think he's got a real problem with that. but i think of very interesting question here is what are his frustrations in the job and it's alwa harto get goodata on that but i think one of his frustrations is in the first term he inherited that financial crisis and he did a good job. we now have an economy not just on the verge of stability but on the verge of takeoff and you never get credit as president for what you kept from happening which would have been a depression and he knows he spent so much energy on that sand he knows in the midst ofit he got health care refor
, it is a difference, but look at the house. we have nancy pelosi as the leader, and although, boehner is the republican speaker, but all of us view nancy pelosi as the democratic speaker and look at the leader show has been. she is very strong, and very forceful, but she is still a le leader that brings everybody together. and boehner career clearly -- boehner clearly has been unable to do that. but ideology is different so you cannot just describe the women to behave in that way, so it is gender, but also ideology. >> and with the cross cut, mrs. edelman, what is the thing that you would ask the 113th congress to do relative to the policy immediately on children's poverty issues? >> we have to have a jobs program and we have to have the strong early childhood system that includes comprehensive child care to help people work and not sacrifice their children and we have to begin to break in and prevent and intervene early and karen has gotten something through to help foster care children, but we have to have a get a first rate quality system to foster children, and break this cycle of
the fiscal cliff, going to the table and negotiating, not only did he push nancy pelosi still on taxes, he also dider skin bowls. >> arthel: do you think that speaker boehner can get his caucus to work together moving forward for the next four years? >> arthel, it's going to be very difficult but i think he can, but we do have a republican party that is divided. they have a lot of work to do. we have a tea party on principle and they need to work together to get what they need to get. the bottom line is this, if they don't work together then we'll be the same mess for another four years. >> arthel: let's hope not. angela, good to see you, julie, thank you as well for your outlook on this. >> eric: now for a look beyond the news for a continuing issue that divided our country for decades. here a liz with commentary. >> 40th anniversary of the roe versus wade division by the u.s. supreme court for the feminist left in 1973 was a crowning achievement. abortion was here to stay enshrined as a nation's law. you can sure that aging saints will be available for interviews when the media that love
a big sham. it's just a big game. nancy pelosi rejected the plan as a gimmick. she's correct. this gimmick is the only thing republicans have up their sleeves right now. john boehner told everyone two years ago the country would not default on its debt. >> do you agree with administration officials and other economists that defaulting on the full faith and credit of the united states would be a financial disaster? >> that would be a financial disaster, not only for our country, but for the worldwide economy. >> and president obama reminded congress the economic damage done by playing games with the debt limit. >> the last time republicans in congress even flirted with this idea, our aaa credit rating was downgraded for the first time in our history. our businesses created the fewest jobs of any month in nearly the past three years and, ironically, the whole fiasco actually added to the deficit. >> republicans basically had no choice but to retreat from their hard line position, negotiating with the american people. if the country defaulted, they would be responsible for a glo
'm hearing talks that nancy pelosi and others are not done taxes, but want to move after the rich more, climbing over 50% is not a big leap, and leaving it just to the rich and thinking that the rest will not be affected -- >> right. neil: there's a lot more to come. >> right, and, you know, looking at the democrats' plan and the president's plan for spending over the next ten years, we know they want to tax the rich more. they want to take that rate up to 50% or so of the richest income. there's just not enough money there. they can't pay for these explosive spending levels that they foresee for the next ten years, so it's right in the sense they are going to come off new taxpayers if they can't bleed the rich anymore to fund big government, but the benefit of having the fiscal cliff behind us is that the argument is not about taxes. now we're talking about spending. republicans, leader mcconnell on the hill, speaker boehner say we're done. we solved the problem of baselines that are flux waiting every two years, we know where we are on the revenue side, and now all the fights need to
leader harry reid and house democratic leader nancy pelosi.

to realize, wait a second-- you've got nancy pelosi as an opponent, you have a clear choice of ideologies. we have a tremendous amount of hard work to do. but it's doable. >> they all talked about this, and they began to get more and more optimistic, and they left feeling practically exuberant. >> inauguration day full of events. ten, count them, ten official inaugural balls... >> narrator: across washington that evening... >> stunning crowd of people... >> narrator: the new president had no idea what the republicans were planning. >> ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states and the first lady, michelle obama. (crowd cheering) >> narrator: surrounded by supporters at the inaugural balls, the mood was hopeful. ♪ at last... >> president obama did not have a full sense of what washington was going to be like for him. he had not been in the middle of these kind of down-and-dirty fights, the ugly reality of governing in washington today. >> you have, in obama's case, gone within four years from being an illinois state politician to the most famous person on earth, and you have co
the majority and have nancy pelosi write that bill. there are no other choices. these numbers are changing, just like the demographics are changing. you know, mitt romney got the same percentage of white voters that george h.w. bush got in 1988. george h.w. bush won a landslide over michael dukakis. we know what happened to mitt romney. the same thing's happening now. the political ground is moving under their feet, and right now, sadly, neither they, nor the nra, is doing what it takes to make sure they adapt to changing times. and if they don't do it pretty y quickly, there's going to be changes for both organizations. >> more broadly among house republicans, you wrote in their response to colin powell, you in 1996 did not think he was the right choice to be the nominee, but you said the republican party of 2013 bears little resemblance to the party of ronald reagan that would have responded to powell's concerns with an all hands on deck effort to win the war back. it's big enough to win back the white house in 2016. and that's, to the point, we have a more and more bifurcated congress,
him. de facto nancy pelosi is the speaker of the house rns and steny huher is the majority leader. >> you say that because. >> because we've had two major legislative initiatives in this, important ones, one to avoid the fiscal cliff, and plummeting off. and left to their own votes, the republicans rejected it. it was passed only because the democrats. and then after that, we had the vote on hurricane sandy. and the people of new york and new jersey and new england who were devastated by it to get the same kind of treatment that the people who suffered from cat in-- katrina did. left to republican votes and john boehner's best efforts have failed in the house of representatives. democrats passed it. both cases, democrats were the key. >> i thinks that-- these are exceptional cases. in the years ahead the republicans discover they can't govern controlling the house. the democrats are going to discover they can't get much done unless they control the house. and i think in general the general pattern is they both lost a lot of -- >> here we are the friday before the secretary inaugur
and nancy pelosi in december of 2007. he said the economy is slipping, i need a stimulus and they worked with him to give him the kind he can sign. then 2008, the terrible crisis and it was a very partisan thing in which the bush administration got more support from democrats and republicans in the final vote. then comes the election of barack obama and mitch mcconnell's announcement that his number one agenda item is to defeat president obama. we have, i think, a productive 2009 and 2010 and then in 2010, a group gets elected in the house, in particular, we don't believe in governance. not totally pessimistic. the way to go we've seen in the last three major issues in the house, a split within the republican party where main stream conservatives of the bob dole variety have aligned with the majority of democrats. they've been opposed by a majority of republicans in the house, but not of the whole house and speaker boehner, to his credit, has been allowing a coalition to come together and i hope what happens is that the main stream conservativism of the republican party continue to fight
house minority leader nancy pelosi saying: >> so the republicans are taking the debt ceiling debate moving it off a few months perhaps take place in april or may so they can focus on the automatic spending cuts set to hit the budget at the end of february those are known as sequester and also government discretionary spending authority that runs out in march. plenty of budget fights and it looks like we will be having them just about every couple of months all the way through the spring. david: as long as you are in williams burg virginia what do you care? it is a lovely place to be right now this time of year. rich: yes and the wind has died down and the snow is melting. it's a nice place. david: thanks rich. liz: we will find out what a representative thinks about the debt ceiling bill that will hit the floor next week and find out why she's calling for congress to get rid of the debt ceiling all together. david: also, all the fighting in d.c. could create a big opportunity for you the investor. find out exactly how you can trade the debt ceiling a little later this hour. it will

nancy pelosi's speakership. they're playing -- it's the long play. >> i have a question for you. what do you think the polls would have shown before "madd" was organized to have a campaign against drunk driving about whether you could have an open container in your car or whether it's wise to drive after having a couple shooters in a bar. or whether you're going somewhere and somebody in the back seat has a six-pack. what do you think the polls would say about that? >> all of that matters. and i think what the -- undertone of what the president was saying, he has to marshal this kind of cultural battle. it's not automatic. we can sit here in midtown manhattan where everybody would agree with us. but outside of here, not everybody does. in fact, there is an amazing statistic that shows that 23% of people in our poll call the availability of guns as the cause of gun violence compared with 37% who pointed to parenting and 37% who talked about public culture. >> but rick, i've got to bring this up too. i love that you're bringing up counterintuitive polls. but you're saying polls show that 5
